The Chelsea star won his 75th cap on Saturday, 10 years after he made his debut against Belgium.
And while a defeat by Ukraine was not the way Lampard wanted to celebrate, it has not dampened his hopes of reaching the magic century of appearances.
The 31-year-old should be involved on Wednesday night, when Fabio Capello's men complete their World Cup qualifying campaign against Belarus. And he admits he finds the England scene as enjoyable now as he has ever done.
"I am pleased with how my career with England has gone," said Lampard. "In fact I am probably enjoying it now as much as I have ever done.
"I was disregarded for a couple of years - probably quite rightly because I don't think I was ready to play regularly for my country then - and I have had my ups and downs. But anyone who has played for 10 years has probably had the same kind of thing. I am very proud to have reached this level. Now I want to go on and make it 100."
